In contrast to the MIT Intrinsic Images dataset [1], Bell et al. introduce a much larger dataset of more realistic scenes. The ground truth was obtained using crowdsourcing. In addition, they present a new intrinsic image algorithm and include thorough comparison to several recent approaches: Garces et al. [2], Zhao et al. [3] and Shen et al. [4]. The dataset can be downloaded online at opensurfaces.cs.cornell.edu/publications/intrinsic/ and the source code is available on GitHub.
